Want to give a fist bump to your favorite contractor? He or she might be more than a little tired.
National Tradesmen Day is this Friday (Sept. 17) and it’s the ideal time for a story on the dramatic rise in pandemic-fueled demand for home repair and improvement services — and how this has transformed industries like roofing, landscaping, plumbing, pool service, solar installation, and many more.
According to the Hearth National Tradesmen Day Index — a study of the demand for critical home services based on home improvement loans taken on the Hearth platform and Google search volume for tradesmen service providers — 2019 to 2021 represented an unprecedented rise in industry growth.
